Wikileaks: John Kerry Pressured Ecuador into Taking Julian Assange’s Internet Away

AssangeThe organization Wikileaks is claiming that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry personally pressured the government of Ecuador to cut its founder Julian Assange’s internet access, preventing further publication of private emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

On Tuesday, the Wikileaks Twitter account accused Kerry of using his position as head of the State Department to demand that the leftist South American government disconnect Assange’s internet access. Assange has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the past four years. If true, Kerry’s authority to make such a request would be dubious, as the hacked emails in question are not government correspondence, but private emails by partisan political campaign officials.

According to Wikileaks, Kerry met with “Ecuador” – potentially President Rafael Correa – in September and requested they shut down Assange’s operation out of their embassy.

    It seems that Trump is having to fight the entire world. The Democrats are so very corrupt and it is as if they have something on everyone the way they control everything. Wikileaks is actually doing the US a great service in exposing Hillary Clinton!
